Slurry Systems Reference Guide
from C.H.I.P.S.

Slurry Systems Handbook
by Baha E. Abulnaga, P.E.

Slurry Systems Handbook includes practical examples of operating slurry pipelines, appropriate codes and guidelines to conduct feasibility studies for slurry concentrate or tailings disposal systems.

A comprehensive resource on slurries and slurry systems, covering everything from fluid mechanics to soil classification, pump design to selection criteria, Slurry Systems Handbook is truly a reference any slurry system engineer would want on their shelf.

Key Features:

  • Appropriate reference standards from soil classification to pipeline construction
  • Practical examples and more than 70 solved problems of design
  • Programs of slurry hydraulics for the personal computer
  • Comparison between different mathematical models for heterogeneous and homogeneous mixtures, Newtonian and Non-Newtonian flows
  • Open channel slurry flow, drop boxes and cascades
  • Advanced equations for further research
  • Materials selection for abrasion and erosion-corrosion
  • Detailed design of slurry pumps
  • Slurry solutions to the siltation of large dams
  • 450 illustrations
  • Feasibility study for hydrotransport
  • Examines hydraulics of slurry flows
  • Details equipment used in making and processing slurries
  • Covers ASME codes
